The Culinary Union in Nevada has threatened to sit out the 2012 election. This could be a big deal. The most powerful labor union in Nevada, with deep roots in the Las Vegas Latino community, the Culinary Union could really threaten Obama’s ability to win the state. Why is the union doing this? It claims because it is too busy fighting for new contracts and organizing workplaces. But the more likely reason is because Democrats rely on labor to win elections and then do very little to press labor’s agenda.

i'm the leftist liberal you've been warned about - the one who genuinely supports the expansion of the welfare state. i love politics and data and graffiti and street art and am far too lazy to use my shift key. if you need to reach me, you can email to abbyjean at the google email service.
